Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: NON-DEAD - Waiting on the Sandman?

Having listened to Lou Reed in all his various incarnations since I was teen in the early 70's,I could generally find something to like in all of his projects,but I am having trouble developing any interest in this pairing with Metallica,I can dig some loud,fast,aggressive music as much as the next guy,but I don't get Metallica on any level.From what I have heard over the years none of them seem to be particularly skilled on their instruments,he just screams the vocals at you in that laughable metal guy style and the lyrics are childish and stupid.I can't for the life of me understand why Lou would involve himself with these guys.
I posted this link in case anyone wanted to watch Lou and the boys piss all over 2 Velvet Underground classics.

Waiting for the Sandman was a truly funny thread title BD.
